First Day in Llangrannog

A most marvellous walk from the Farm House (a most excellent last-minute find from lovely Fay) to “the city” as F called it, or Llangrannog to the rest of the world.

Cliff top pose

Break time 

For such a long distance hike many rest stops were required.

llangrannog

But the destination was well worth the effort.

Camping

After a long afternoon making the most of it…

Slow cooking fish

..the fish (fresh from Mortehoe) were slow-cooked on the BrillBarbie

Snug H

Late starting and very slow, so the boy’s snugged down for the evening.

Tucking in

But it was well worth it. Super dinner and the perfect end to a lovely break down in Woolacombe with the FabFour™

Chilling in Woolacombe

Woolacombe when the summer arrived. Busy, but nicely busy.

F (doesn’t he look like H?) waiting for that perfect wave (it arrived, two days later).

Bath with a view

The second-best bath view in the world. The first is obviously the pacific from La Push (although there’s no published pictures of that one ;-))

Beach Scouting

Cliff Path

First job at the hut, scout the cliff path to the beach. Steep, slippy and in places ‘hairy’ too. Time to beach: boys 10 mins; adults 17.5 mins; Ewok 30 seconds.

I see no ships

“I see no ships”.

Dive boats above HMS Scylla

Except the dive boats above HMS Scylla.

Proper Walk

A very proper walk. And good aerobic training going back up.
